Name: Grays Harbor Shorebird Festival
Date: April 27, 2018 - April 29, 2018
Event Description:
Each spring, hundreds of thousands of shorebirds stop to rest and feed along the Washington Coast and in the Grays Harbor estuary during their migration northward. Coming from as far south as Argentina, these Arctic-bound shorebirds are among the world’s greatest migrants. Some birds travel over 15,000 miles round trip! The concentration of birds during spring migration offers people a great chance to view a number of shorebird species.

On Friday, until 3pm, events start or are located at the Grays Harbor National Wildlife Refuge Office on Airport Way. On Friday starting at 4pm, then all day Saturday and Sunday, the Festival Headquarters is at Hoquiam High School, Hoquiam. From Aberdeen, follow US 101 to Hoquiam. Stay in the left lane onto Highway 109 (Ocean Shores Hwy.), this is also Emerson Ave. Hoquiam High School is on the right 1.1 miles from that intersection. Park in the school lot. Maps can be found here.
